LUFKIN, Texas (WHDH) — Emergency crews rescued a 2-year-old German shepherd who became stuck in the undercarriage of his owner’s pickup truck in Lufkin, Texas Sunday morning.
The dog named Booger apparently got scared during an overnight storm and climbed under the truck before he became stuck.

His owner, Roger Grimes, told officers he realized what had happened when he saw Booger’s tail sticking out from under the truck.
Members of the local police and fire departments removed the front driveshaft and sway bar to help free the frightened dog.
Booger ended up being sedated by an animal control officer after he kept trying to bite his rescuers.
He was eventually freed and firefighters were able to reinstall the truck’s driveshaft and sway bar.
Grimes said Booger is doing well and he appreciates everyone who responded to the call.
“I hated calling, but I didn’t know anyone else who could help,” Grimes said. “I just want the say thanks to the fire department, police department and animal control. They really pulled me out of a bind.”

“The decision to postpone our first game of the season was not made lightly,” Red Sox president and CEO Sam Kennedy said. “The built-in off day was created for just this purpose and tomorrow’s forecast for sunshine also factored into our decision. We have been eager to have fans back at Fenway Park for the first time in 18 months and look forward to welcoming everyone back tomorrow under brighter and drier conditions.”
For the 4,500 or so fans who had tickets for Thursday’s game, those tickets will be honored on Friday. Pregame ceremonies will begin at 1:40 p.m.

As Kennedy noted, the team had a built-in off day on Friday to account for potential weather on Opening Day. The rain on Thursday is expected to stop before the 2 p.m. scheduled first pitch, but the team opted to push the game to Friday, when the forecast calls for clear skies and no precipitation.
